Maria Sharapova, the former World Number One Tennis Player, is not one to back down from a challenge. Clearly, the Russian tennis player’s fearlessness extends beyond the court to her interior design style. KAA Design posted a photo of the athlete’s entryway, and the style of Maria Sharapova’s Los Angeles home has given us infinite industrial decor ideas.
The design of Maria Sharapova’s entryway is monochromatic gray in an industrial design. Travertine flooring provides some natural detail against the concrete walls. Floating stairs are styled against the wall with sleek glass railings. ‘A sculpted overhead skylight introduces natural light and brings unexpected drama into our entry,’ says the team at KAA Design. A concrete bench surrounded by decorative stone spheres grounds the design while a sculptural chandelier adds some organic shape to this entryway idea.
Home decor experts say that Maria Sharapova’s design sets a positive tone for the entire LA house. Isabella Adler, interior designer and writer at Next Luxury states: ‘An ultra-modern entryway provides many ways for setting the scene in a house. It adds a solid first impression, giving a sense of style and eliteness.’ She continues, ‘The sleek lines, minimalist design, and contemporary elements in an ultra-modern entryway generate a stunning look and inviting place that sets the tone for the whole house.’
‘An entryway is the first impression that guests and residents get of your home,’ says Jennifer Ebert, Digital Editor at Homes & Gardens. ‘By setting up her space with an extremely modern design, Maria Sharapova creates a sense that the rest of her home will be clean, sleek, minimalist, and cool.’
The experts also love how Maria’s entryway design creates a neutral, welcoming feel. Interior Designer Isabella Adler says, ‘Elements like concrete flooring generate a modern-industrial vibe that promotes a sense of urban chic. Such details add a feeling of uniqueness and visually appealing place, lending a personal touch to the whole area.’
Furthermore, she adds, ‘ The cool gray color scheme in the entryway generates a sleek and sophisticated ambiance. Gray is a versatile and timeless color that boosts a feel of smoothness and balance. It offers a neutral backdrop, letting other design elements and decor create a unique statement.’
